Not necessarily. Remember that the definition of an irrational number is a number that can't be expressed as a simple fraction. 2/3, for example, is rational by that definition even though its decimal form is a repeating decimal. Since irrational numbers cannot be written as fractions, they don't have fraction forms. So basically, numbers with repeating decimals are considered rational. Irrational numbers don't have repeating decimals.

0.666 is the same as 666/1000, but if you're eluding to repeating sixes, that's 2/3.

How is 0.025 with the 25 part repeating written as a fraction in simplest form? Question 1 options: 5/198 5/396 10/198 10/396

If you mean the terminating decimal: 11.111 = 11111/1000 = 11 111/1000 If you mean the recurring decimal: 11.111... = 100/9 = 11 1/9

No. An irrational number isn't a whole number, nor can it be represented exactly as a fraction of two whole numbers. 50 is a whole number, so it's rational. 50/3, while having a repeating decimal, is still rational because it's an exact fraction. The square root of two is irrational because there is no fraction that can exactly represent it. The same goes for pi (although 22/7 is close enough for government work -- jk).

A nonterminating number does not end. An example is the fraction 1/3. When written as a decimal, it is a nonterminating number. Also pi is a nonterminating number. Some nonterminating numbers are repeating, some are nonrepeating. But they just don't end.

0.875 is a terminating decimal and as a fraction it is 7/8

It is a repeating decimal.

If the decimal is terminating or repeating then it can be written as a fraction. Decimal representations which are non-terminating and non-repeating cannot be expressed as a fraction.

A negative fraction need not be a terminating decimal. For example, -2/3 = -0.66... (repeating).

A fraction which, in its simplest form, has a denominator which contains a prime factor other than 2 or 5 will be a non-terminating decimal. However, you cannot actually write such a fraction because you would never get to the end.

For repeting it while repeat the same number over and over And for terminating it is such the oppisite

To sum this answer up you half to turn the fraction into a decimal and if it ends that is terminating but if it keeps going it is called a repeating decimal EXAMPLES Terminating- 5/10=.5 Repeating- 1/3=.3333 (bar notation over the 3)

If a fraction, in its simplest form has a denominator whose only prime factors are 2 or 5, then the fraction is terminating. If the denominator has any other prime factor then the decimal is repeating.

Any rational number is either a repeating decimal, or a terminating decimal.

If a fraction is a rational number then if the denominator goes into the numerator or into the numerator multiplied by a power of 10, then you will have a terminating decimal. Otherwise it will be a repeating decimal.

It's 10,101,010,101,010,101/10,000,000,000,000,000 .If the decimal had been repeating, non-terminating,then the fraction would be 100/99 .
